Alliance Virtual 2020

Why A Virtual Conference?

With the rapidly changing and uncertain work landscape, the importance of networking and professional development remains as critical as ever. While nothing will ever replace face-to-face interactions, new technologies are now available that allow us to overcome distance and other restrictions placed upon us in order to allow the HEUG membership to attend sessions and engage in meaningful dialogs.

In these challenging and exceptional times, higher education professionals need a place to come together more than ever. Join us this May for the first ever Virtual Alliance Conference. The value for your institution’s investment is huge – professional development with no travel costs, hotel stays or meals to expense. While we can’t offer you a party or an in-person meeting with trusted colleagues, we can provide you with the same superb content you’ve come to expect from this world-class event as well as valuable networking opportunities.

The Alliance conference has always been most of all about sharing innovations, collaborating with peers and finding the inspiration that comes from learning about creative solutions. That focus will never change.

We hope to see you soon (virtually)!
